* Two pricing games on ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' (Check Game and Credit Card) have been "withdrawn". Although neither game has been played in years, the staff has not officially declared either game retired — but then again, they're also making no claims of either game coming back. So as far as they're concerned, both games may or may not be retired.

* SoundHorizon is built upon creating elaborate {{Rock Opera}}s with complicated {{Jigsaw Puzzle Plot}}s with ridiculous quantities of multi-lingual wordplay and then watching all the fans try to figure out what in the holy hell it means while refusing to explain any of it. The official statement is that Revo doesn't want to force one interpretation on the audience when WildMassGuessing is half the fun of being in the fandom. The fandom's stance is that [[TeasingCreator their brainpain]] [[TrollingCreator amuses him.]]

* Of the famously ambiguous scene in the Marabar caves in ''A Passage to India'', E.M Forster said, "In the cave it is ''either'' a man, ''or'' the supernatural, ''or'' an illusion. If I say, it becomes whatever the answer a different book. And even if I know! My writing mind is therefore a blur here, i.e, I will it to remain a blur."

* None of the editors on ''OrionsArm'' will ''ever'' answer certain questions about certain setting elements. Are the Dawn Hunters real? Why did the previous galactic empires all up and disappear? "The last--" What did they find at the Hedrile? Where, exactly, does the Fargate lead? Which of the higher Archailects actually exist? Is the universe just another Bottle Universe? Are the Amalgamation Terragen or Xeno? This is in keeping with the setting; since certain things, particularly those involving the Archailects themselves, are deemed to be ultimately impossible to explain in terms that we mere humans can grasp with our tiny organic brains.

* Acclaimed author CormacMcCarthy is notorious for this sort of response to his own work, insisting that nothing means anything and that it's all just story for the sake of story. He can be downright curmudgeonly if pressed on this point (once, famously, to OprahWinfrey, who managed to coax him out of his cave for a rare interview).

* One question ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' fans wondered was whether the other Griffins could understand what Stewie was saying. When asked this question (on the early season [=DVDs=]), creator SethMacFarlane replied, "Well, Brian can understand him." Chris also seems to understand him just fine. The topic has also been [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] several times.

* Invoked by Creator/ClintEastwood. He had always intended that the mysterious stranger in ''HighPlainsDrifter'' was the murdered sheriff's brother, but he liked the fan theories about who or what he was so much that he went on to make ''Film/PaleRider'' and deliberately avoid any clues as to the preacher's true identity.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', odd visual effects are often used as an artistic convention, such as the angry black eyes of death in [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1187 this comic.]] However, as some of the characters have magic powers, sometimes similar effects are clearly actually happening in-universe. For example, Tedd is actually glowing in [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=874 this comic,]] as another character comments on it. However, in [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2325 this comic,]] the author claims in the commentary that he isn't entirely sure whether the spectral flames surrounding Elliot are merely an artistic convention, or something that is actually happening.

** The Amuro and Char issue only really holds true for the anime; in ''Beltorchika's Children'', Tomino's intended version of the story, [[spoiler:they're clearly stated to be dead]]. The ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' novels implied that [[spoiler:they AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, as evidenced by Barnarge hearing their voices when the Unicorn's psycoframe overloads]]; and the anime adaptation of ''Unicorn'' shows [[spoiler:the spirits of Amuro and Char, along with the spirit of Lalah, depart from the world]] in its final episode.

** Davies also gave a Shrug Of God when asked whether Davros had survived the ending of "Journeys' End". In that case it was Moffat who eventually, [[JokerImmunity and predictably]], answered "yes".
